I didn't see the option: "The 40 second recap during the Sports section of the local nightly news broadcast."

Honestly, I have no desire to watch the 17 hours of coverage just to enjoy the 3 or 4 plays that will rise above the level of effort that you see during the regular season.

Interesting....IDK we have a 65'' DLP, if there was an option for a 65'' Plasma......but then again you could have the 90'' DLP at that price.

For me though it would be at night once the crazy family is gone and I spent the day at an amusement park with no lines smile.gif (Aint that the point of the DVR?)

Go Hawks!

They're attention is mostly split between the game, a healthy amount of trash-talking, drinking, and eating. A good HD signal fed into a decent 1080p flat panel TV is all that's needed. Taking all that into account, I would say a very large LCD is a pretty nice fit.

Definitely agree. We run two panels for the occasion. Our 47” LCD on the main level and on our 60” plasma on the man cave level. All that matters is that we’re amongst good company and that our guest have a good view of the game.

As a Seattleite we are having people over. I would prefer to watch it on the 60" Kuro but they will want to watch it in a bright room with the Epson 6010 projector on 120" screen

The Epson set to living room mode will put out a great picture.
